Annie Rae

Forgive me for the delay, but we’ve been slightly busy falling in love with this little thing. ;)

Introducing…

Annie Rae Boswell

Born October 16th at 8:12 am // 6 pounds, 14 ounces // 19 inches long

We are so. smitten. ❤️ Everything went as smooth as could be, and we are all home feeling great. God is so good!

I completely underestimated how obsessed I would be with her. 💕

As if he wasn’t attractive enough already…😉😍

The photo above was probably my favorite 15 minutes of life. All the visitors and nurses had gone, and it was just the three of us snuggling on my hospital bed. My heart was exploding and desperately trying to soak up every second. I wish I could go back to this moment over and over! ❤️

Good news – Jack absolutely adores her. ❤️ He constantly wants to be licking her (we’re trying to keep his tongue away from her face as much as possible, don’t worry lol), and he whines or howls sadly when she cries. They are going to be the cutest BFFs.

I’ll post more soon about our hospital stay, birth story, first week home, etc. And obviously there are about 8,000 more photos to come. ;)

The Final Countdown

One week from today, you’ll be in my arms.

You’ll get to see your Daddy’s handsome face for the first time.

You’ll get to meet your grandparents, your aunts, your uncles, your cousins – all the people who have been praying for you and loving you so well already.

One week from today, I imagine the Lord will be smiling as the little family He’s creating begins. ❤️

Enormous thanks to Kristi Cormack and Alyssa Ulrich for taking these photos for us. (And to Andrew, who took the last three pictures and graciously endures all my photoshoots. 😉)

ONE MORE WEEK. ❤️

A Pregnant Pause

Last week, I finished all my shoots and editing for the year. 🙌🏼 The past several days have been spent cleaning and re-organizing my entire house. It has been the most exhilarating feeling ever. ;) I am SO excited to finally have some down time again! With just under 4 weeks until our little Annie arrives, I am planning to push the pause button and soak up all the free time I can. And while I’m still working one job, it’s nice to have put a hold on the CaitPhoto side for now. I plan to clean and nap as much as possible the last few weeks before baby joins us. ;)

The past month has been full of baby showering, date nights, and nursery work. I can’t believe we only have a month left before she’s here!

These sweet beauties threw us the BEST baby shower! We are so thankful for all the sweet people who already love our Annie!

Mom-in-law strikes again. 😉

I’m at a party if there are Uncle Mitch cookies. 🍪

I love this sweet BFF so much!

All the feels.

My not-so-little, little sister looked so pretty. What a grown-up. 😭

I win at in-law family. 😉

Sweet Mama. 💕

People who get me gift me things like this. ❤️ (Thanks, Molly!)

Having a moment with Goldie. 😍

Love these cutie coworkers of mine!

This picture makes my heart happy. I have so many good memories with these babes! 💕

It was such a fun surprise to have my cousin and aunt come out from Georgia!

And finally, Annie’s namesake – just being the cutest. 🤗

In other news, we’ve been eating out entirely too much, but we figure we’d better cherish it while we can! 😉 Halls Pizza Kitchen was a winner!

And Flint is always a winner for breakfast.

We’re still exercising (every now and then lol) to keep those calories at bay. ;)

Baby laundry is so much cuter than adult laundry.

I’m also soaking up the snuggles with this pooch. His world is about to turn upside down. ;)

I waited my whole pregnancy for the fair to arrive. 🙌🏼

And it did not disappoint. 😉

I’ll do a full post on Annie’s nursery when it’s completely finished, but here’s a little peek for now. 😊 (Jack is so proud.)

Happy Sunday, loves!
